Get out of my chair!

iD Tech in action

This week has been quite a week.  I've been overseas for quite some time, so I expected some catch up during my first week back...sorting through "a few" emails, checking in with my people, and, of course, getting used to my new chair.  My new chair?

Before I left on vacation, the staff here at iD Tech Camps pulled their own money and bought me a new chair.  You guys are awesome!  They figured after 8 or 9 years, it was time.  The funny thing is that when I walked into the office on Monday, they had wallpapered my "office" (I don't believe in offices--everything is wide open where we work).

The wallpaper showed a number of employees taking turns breaking in my new chair while I was away.  I think you'll get a kick out of these photos.  As I turned the corner to my desk at 7 AM on Monday, here's what I saw:

For all of you that did NOT sit in my chair, feel free--everyone else has.  As you can tell, I am back, and I look forward to some heavier blogging in the weeks ahead.  Until next time, nation!


A photo of Pete

Pete has been at the helm of iD since 2000. He resides in Silicon Valley. Pete has a love of design and is passionate about creating memorable experiences for kids. By day he is CEO, by night he is a youth soccer coach and chef of the house. Pete studied at UW in Seattle and worked abroad in Spain. He is fluent in Spanish, but his kids think otherwise. The best part of the job? Seeing the kids advance from tech novices to studying at top Universities and landing big-time jobs.
